The cheap ones I know you can. Sometimes they even peel off themselves, The first one I had was 'professionally' supplied and installed - by the mechanic. Didn't clean the tank surface properly in the first place???

The second one that is recommended for my other bike by another bike shop (also at the lower end type pads instead of the carbon ones, etc) I decided not to install it after all. Too small, with wide enough gaps in the shape to get the tank scratched. Used 'contact' instead - those used to cover up books. Large enough to cover half the back of the tank and where the thigh is.

Not very pretty though but it works. Easy enough to come off. I use 2/3 layers. Change them when needed. Or plaster on some more. There are some which is stronger - metallic looking ones. Sounds stingy but that's not the reason, is it?

If you must, line it up vertically where you want it and then start from the middle of the pad then moving outwards.
